New products from Monsoon cooling - Page 276

post #2751 of 4504
A couple questions:

1.) I noticed a picture that was posted around the time that the white parts were made available to PPCs. It had the SAP pump with the white molded top. Is that white top available on PPCs? I don't believe you can order just the molded top, let alone in white. I've already painted one myself a while ago, but I plan on getting the other molded parts and would prefer to have everything was the same shade of white.

2.) I don't know if I've missed it somewhere in this thread, but is there an estimated date for the EV2 fittings being available?

3.) Now a question unrelated to product availability. I will be installing the FDP at the back of my case. I've seen examples of the FDP installed and I understand how it works. However, the place where I need it installed has that mesh/hole surface, as shown below:



What do you guys think is the best way to cut the circular hole for the FDP? Would the drill bit that is meant for the FDP work in this scenario or would it be easier/cleaner to just dremel out the tiny pieces of metal between the holes? And overall, is there anything that would prevent the FDP from working on such a surface? I don't have much hands-on experience with this type of work, so I don't want to try something that will not work and/or damage the case.

Thanks!

White pump top - http://www.performance-pcs.com/monsoon-mmrs-end-cap-with-d5-pump-mount-white.html

I believe BoxGods said recently EV2 fittings are packed and ready to ship out to etailers.

Go to hardware store and get a reamer like this for a drill to make the FDP hole.


BoxGods or anyone else may add more/better info.

I wouldn't use one of those drills to get your 44mm hole. Just work out where you need to 'cut' between the hexes and do it with a dremel or manual saw.

A bit back in the thread @BoxGods said that the white ends and tops were still in production. Not sure if he gave an update as to when they would be available at the retail level.

Gotcha, I was just curious. I've been monitoring PPCs every so often to see if the pump top would show up, since the other white end caps have been up for a few weeks now.

Why? A dremel makes a mess, a reamer makes a nice clean hole. Unless they already have a dremel and don't want to spend money...

A reamer through chicken wire would make a huge mess. A reamer through a solid piece of aluminium is spot on .. and one of the most fun elements I have when modding cases. A reamer through the hex grid ... that has me worried as it could really give a bad result.

Using tools properly is key to a good outcome. It does work, at least for 1000's of modders over about 20 years, but then each to their own also.

I totally agree. But I think Tomiger's question includes some wrinkles that I am not sure if your answer has address.

Part One - the hole will be 44mm diameter ...

If you can find a reamer (is that really what they are called? I've been calling them step-drills) that goes all the way up to 44mm (that is 1.75") then great.

Part Two - the hole is being put into a sheet of mesh ...

I've used step-drills. When they step up in size, there is some drill kickback. You can just work straight through a solid piece ... but a piece that is mainly empty (ie the above mesh) may give some very unpleasant results as it steps up to the next size.

All of that said ... the FDP part includes a metal piece were only the inside part goes into the hole ... there is a lot of flang that can and (in the case of my 44mm hole) does cover up a lot of rough edges.
